From the time I was old enough to hold a paint brush all the way through college, I worked as a professional house painter alongside my father and two brothers. Now an injury lawyer, this is why I still love hard work. This also gave me a unique understanding of how a construction site operates, and the workers who sacrifice their bodies and risk their lives working in tough conditions to improve our community.
At my 2014 graduation from SUNY Buffalo Law School, I was awarded the prestigious James M. Kieffer Trial Excellence Award. This is given to the graduate with the most outstanding proficiency in trial advocacy. I was also awarded the Gerald J. O’Brien ’52 Trial Excellence Award and Scholarship during law school. I was on the law school’s nationally recognized trial team and led my team to the finals in the James Johnson ’49 National Civil Rights Trial Competition and received the Robert J. Connelly Trial Technique Award. Moreover, I am the only student in the law school’s history to receive a perfect score on my trial technique evaluation.
More than a Lawyer
Prior to law school, I was a professional musician, performing lead guitar for national recording artist More Than Me. In 2010, I led my group to new heights, winning an international battle of the bands competition, where the grand prize was performing with Paul McCartney in Hyde Park, England in front of 50,000 people. And because I continue to perform music locally, this provides an avenue to raise money for numerous charities, including a foundation I helped cofound—Against the Storm Foundation, Inc. Our foundation helps fight blood cancers and supports other causes that improve the health and quality of life for people in need.
Currently, I focus my practice on representing persons who are injured as the result of someone else’s negligence. As an injury lawyer, I devote my entire career to helping injured persons and their families, as I battle the big insurance companies to get the maximum results my clients deserve. Since establishing my practice, I have recovered millions for my injured clients. Now, it’s your turn to get the compensation you deserve. I am ready to take on your fight.
